, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for the president. >> has worked incredibly closely with me. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> the governor has said he has no intention of bringing romney to new jersey to survey the storm's damage. christie aides are denying any sort of rift with the romney campaign saying it is just about dealing with the storm and not about presidential politics. but one of the main political speculations here is that christie thinks romney has no chance of winning and he is setting himself up for a run in 2016. >>> romney has a good cause to be worried if the polls have anything to say about it. president obama is ahead six points in iowa. that's coming from the nbc news "wall street journal" morris poll. the president's also up by three in wisconsin and two in new hampshire. two
. >>> finally the impact of hurricane sandy. president obama has canceled trips to virginia and ohio. how much has the hurricane hindered your efforts there? >> we have to see how it goes. of course, we're all hoping that the hurricane doesn't have huge consequences for people's safety. we have taken every precaution that we can. the president took down a couple of stops to stay at the white house to monitor the situation. he's given every resource to insure that people are safe. we have to see how this goes. we're all hoping for the best and for the people's safety. >> stephanie cutter, thank you very much. >>> let's turn to newt gingrich. thanks for coming in this morning. you heard stephanie cutter there. she believes their campaign is ahead in hope. your response? >> i think you put your finger on it with the des moines register, a newspaper that hasn't endorsed a republican in 40 years, now they were for obama four years ago, they switched. the fact is, the paper in florida did the same thing, pro-obama, it switched. in ohio, we clearly have gained ground. i think across the country, we h
. >> and obama at 50, not at 47%. >> and obama is at 50% in ohio, willie. >> one other note inside that "new york times" poll, conventional wisdom is obama would struggle with white working-class voters in ohio anyway, not in virginia. but in ohio he's even with romney among white voters who do not have a college degree. that's very important. >> and by the way, i think he's up, what, 30% in florida? >> 30. >> he's up 30 points, willie, in florida among white voters. but in ohio, he's dead even. >> dead even. florida and virginia. >> and virginia. >> 30 points. >> think about how much of the negative bain advertising took place this summer you still see it in the numbers, doesn't care about people like me. romney's numbers are still upside down. people say governor romney doesn't care about people like them. that is still the result of a summer of pummeling in ohio by the obama campaign and the democratic super pacs which worked ohio harder, knowing that the state could be a firewall, knowing that they could hold the electoral map and take ahold of ohio. they hit him harder there than anywhe anyw
points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in 2008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated this time around than they were. secondly, when you poll, you take a political affiliation of people you call. as mr. rove just told us on his little board, his little white board he takes everywhere they poll more democrats in each of the three swing states than republicans. all right? but the folks don't know that because the "new york times" doesn't put that in the headline. so, my question to you is, do
times" poll out today shows president obama doing very well in florida, ohio, virginia. dick morris going to have thoughts on that later. but, do you take that poll seriously? >> no, i don't take those three polls seriously. here is why. in florida, they have obama ahead by 1 point. they have seven points more democrats than republicans. even in 2008 there were only 3 points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in .008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated this time around than they were. secondly
poll shows a significant jenter gab gap in ohio. more men for romney and more women for obama. two focus groups this weekend in ohio, one with men and one with women. >> who is undecided? why does mitt romney lag in ohio? >> i think it's a bunch of hard working people. it's manufacturing. everybody gets up. they go to work. romney, i think they look at him as the boss. obama, you can kind of sit down, talk to the guy one on one. >> i think part of it is, since kasic became governor and implemented his policies and turned things around, obama is getting part of the credit for what's happening in ohio. ohio is only at 7% unemployment. what he's done to sit there and turn the state around is unfortunately giving credit to the president. >> ohio, i think it's the auto industry. i think it's what obama did and when he stood behind the people and the auto workers. >> the unions in ohio is why obama is strong right now. >> show me by hands how many of you voted for him in 2008. how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012. what the hell happened? >> the promises were not met. >>
-- >> president obama has created jobs, particularly in ohio where we restored the auto industry. no one can take that away from this past administration, but what they can attribute to governor romney is let them go bankrupt, and also a misleading and distorting ad that tells not the truth but a distortion of that which is so unfair. they will vote the truth and the truth will set them free, and they will vote november 6th and be free. >> excellent, thanks so much to both of you. i appreciate it. of course, the drum beat carries on. just three days to go until election day. many discussions to be had before folks in large numbers hopefully make it to the polls. thanks so much to both of you. appreciate. >>> it's canceled for the first time in 42 years. talking about sunday's new york city marathon. critics were afraid the race would hurt the sandy recovery efforts. now runners have turned their attention from the race to those most in need.

know it was president obama that saved our industry. that's so important to ohio, and that's why the romney campaign is running this misleading and unfortunate ad. it says something about his campaign. if he doesn't take this ad down, i think it will say something about his character and his honesty. >> it's interesting you point out that on the campaign trail thursday night in ohio in auburn hills, mitt romney said that jeep planned to shift all of its output from the united states to china including vehicles built for u.s. consumers. chrysler to your point released a statement, quote, flatly denying it has any plans to move jeep output to china from the united states. that portion of his comments not in the new ad, but nevertheless the new ad still misleading there. but the polls have tightened at least according to one from the state. it shows the race -- i think we have those numbers neck in neck at this point. why is it still so close at this point in your state? >> well, i think you're referring to the ohio poll. >> absolutely. we have it up. it's 49/49 there. >> yes. the o
